At Dragon*Con 2004, Dr. Demento declared “the great Luke Ski” to be his radio program’s “Most Requested Artist of the 21st Century”. Since then, Luke has held onto that title by having a song within the top five of “The Dr. Demento Show’s” year-end “Funny 25″ countdown of his most requested songs of the year for five years in a row, including two of them at #1 (”Peter Parker” featuring Sudden Death in 2002, and “Stealing Like A Hobbit” in 2003).
His song parodies, originals, stand-up and sketches about pop culture pheonema (doot doo, do-do-do!) have make him a favorite performer at science-fiction and fandom conventions all across the midwest and beyond.
He’s released a number of albums over the past ten plus years, and a DVD in 2006, titled “The Ego Has Landed”, featuring appearances by many fellow members of “the Funny Music Project”, a full live concert, and music videos for “Hobbit” and his convention favorite “Grease Wars”.
His recent album “BACONspiracy” features many of the new songs he’s created for the FuMP, such as his new Doctor Who tribute “It Takes Who”, and his Piratey Dr. Demento hit, “You Don’t Know Jack.” Luke’s other recent projects include the podcast, “Luke and Carrie’s Bad Rapport” and a sketch comedy collaboration known as Cirque de So What? with fellow FuMP members Devo Spice, ShoEbox of Worm Quartet and Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad.
